LAKE CONROE, BAYOU, AND CREEK UPDATE AS OF 2:00 P.M.

Intense rainfall rates of 10-15 inches on average fell across the Kingwood, Humble, Huffman, Crosby, Atascocita, Highlands, and Mont Belvieu areas. This has caused flash flooding in urban areas, overbank flooding, and near bankfull conditions across Northeast Harris County, Liberty County, and Southeast Montgomery County.  

Lake Conroe is currently at 199.04 feet above mean sea level (msl), which is two feet below normal pool elevation of 201-feet. The Lake Conroe watershed has averaged about an inch and a half of rainfall in the past 24 hours, with isolated rainfall just over four inches.  Lake Conroe dam gates remain closed and no water is being released.
